Volunteers needed for Boys & Girls Nite Out

PrintThe National Boys & Girls Club Week is coming! During National Boys & Girls Club Week, March 24 – 28, the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows will join thousands of other Clubs across the nation to show how ‘Great Futures’ begin at Boys & Girls Clubs.

Boys & Girls Nite Out, Wednesday, March 26, is an opportunity for volunteers to come into the Club and spend some quality time with Club members. Volunteers and members are matched and join in on a fun-filled evening with carnival games, snacks, activities, and awesome circus acts from Circus Circus Reno.

This is a great opportunity for corporate and community groups looking for a fun way to give back to the community. Volunteering can be an enjoyable way to engage coworkers and employees in team building as well as bonding outside of the workplace. If you, or anyone you know would like to be a part of this fun evening, please contact Anne Studebaker, Volunteer Coordinator at (775) 360-2449 or email.
